thank you for this precision.

I have made more tests and have some more remarks.

I replace the BUILTIN provider by a UserAuthenticator implementation class.
I found that the example included in the documentation is not working if a system shutdown
is done.
In this case the authenticateUser method of the UserAuthenticator implementation is called
with null prameters (except info which has the "shutdown" property set). The example return
false if userName is null so system shutdown raise a "Connection authentication failure occurred."

If we do a system shutdown, it doesn't seam necessary to make database shutdown first (right
?), but do we need to make a system shutdown if we have previously made a database shutdown

  Forgot to add that Yes, the documentation note should be fixed to mention that if authentication
has been enabled, then you do need to authenticate in order to shutdown a Derby system.

    You have to set it _if_ you have defined Derby's BUILT-IN user authentication at the System

NOT exclusive, meaning you can have users defined at the system and database levels.


    "Setting the property as a system-wide property creates system-wide users. Setting the
property as a database-wide property creates users for a single database only."

    See database-level properties versus system-level ones:

    Hope this helps

      In fact I HAVE TO set the user/password attributes to shutdown the system or I have
a "Connection authentication failure occurred" exception.

      So my question is : is-it an error in the documentation or a bug or a misunderstanding
